"Red Rover" as written by and Lindsey Buckingham....
Why do you come around
So very much
You know it just brings you down
It's just something you can touch


You don't belong here
I guess you never did
Whisper, look up, in your ear
You just keep it so well hid


Anyone at all
Could see what was missin'
Could see you were dyin'
But no one was cryin'


And I did hear what you said
Now I can go home
All my days are blue
All my days are bright


Red Rover, Red Rover, Red Rover
We come, we come, we come, we come
To take you over (ah)
Take you over (ah)
Red rover (ah)
Take you over (ah)


One of the quiet ones
One of the few
Now fall down onto your knees
Show us all what you can do


We came around here
To see if you were well
And there's nothing for you to fear
In Heaven or in Hell


Anyone at all
Could see what was missin'
Could see you were dyin'
But no one was cryin'


And I did hear what you said
Now time to drive home
All my days are blue
All days bright


Red Rover, Red Rover, Red Rover
We come, we come, we come, we come
To take you over (ah)
Take you over (ah)
Red rover (ah)
Take you over (ah)
Red rover (ah)
Take you over (ah)
Red rover (ah)
Take you over (ah)

    General Commentthese lyrics are incredibly wrong.

    these are the correct ones:

    Why do you come around so very much
    You know it just brings you down
    it’s just something you can touch

    You don’t belong here
    I guess you never did
    Whisper murder in your ear
    you just keep it so well hid

    Anyone at all
    could see what was missing
    Could see you were dying
    though no one was crying
    And the lips you were kissing
    night after night
    All were bathed in blue
    all bathed in white
    Red rover red rover red rover
    We’ve come we’ve come we’ve come we’ve come to take you over

    One of the quiet ones
    one of the few
    Now fall down onto your knees
    show us all what you can do
    We came around here
    to see if you were well
    And there’s nothing for you to fear
    in heaven or in hell

    repeat chorus.



    these are straight from the booklet.
